Nice idea, many usability issues The principles behind the system are good, but the app has a few snags. In start up there is often a long pause while it gets data, but nothing is happening on screen so looks like it hung; I'm given the first time user instructions every time, there appears to be no way of switching it off; classifying activity is prescriptive with no obvious way of suggesting new categories (eg I see dance as a physical participative activity more like sport, not performing arts); too easy to hit "back" and close app.
Very innovative Tappestry really does create a new platform for social learning. Have seen nothing like it.
Multiple Crashes Crashed frequently, easy to accidentally delete entries, nothing but the spinning arrow when trying to submit new entries.
